Cohort 4 has commenced
The schools who now comprise cohort 4 commenced EDvance on February 13 and have now completed their first three days of professional learning workshops.
After day 1 an evening of Lawn Bowls helped participants to further develop relationships across schools in the cohort and was very well attended. They have also shown great enthusiasm for the professional readings and evidence-based research and have begun reflecting on the implications for their own school data sets.
The EDvance Mentors have also been getting to know their new schools there have been many meeting dates set between now and the end of term 1, as schools are beginning to develop their FED Performance Placements.

Welcome Georgie Wynne

Georgie has recently commenced as the new Program Development Lead with Fogarty EDvance. She has been involved in the education sector as a teacher, leader and consultant with experience across WA, NT and NSW in both government and catholic schools and at systems level. Her specialty areas are teacher and leadership development, team building, teaching and learning and student engagement. Most weekends you will find her out on the golf course perfecting her swing.
